Northdale is an area in transition.
Last week, I bumped into a couple who lived forty years on Hemlock Street, in Waterloo, just north of Wilfred Laurier University. They had raised their family there, their children had attended the local public schools and then the universities. They told me that they had had a hard time selling their home. It took more than a year, they told me, and it eventually sold to a Lawyer from Toronto whose son was attending university in town.
